After setting the nameserver, what then?


Is there some extra step I need to complete on the DreamHost side in order to get the DNS to resolve correctly? So far I’ve set the nameserver at my domain registrar to,, and It seems like I need to do something extra to tell Dreamhost what my domain name is—is that right?

Is there an instruction set on this? Maybe I missed it.

Possible helpful info:
My domain is registered with
My domain is
My site is up and running (although still quite bare) at

Any help is greatly appreciated!


Have you entered your domain name on the manage domains page of the panel? If no, do that. The web hosting column needs to end up saying “fully hosted, user: ______”.
